Happy New Year! I’m going to skip all of the crap and get straight to the point:
I am starting this blog to hold me accountable to my weight loss goals. Like 99% of the U.S., I am starting 2013 with one resolution and that is to lose weight. I say this every year and start off great, but just as 98% of that 99% do, I fall off the bandwagon after a few weeks and revert back to my “old ways”.
This blog is a testament to myself that I will not let that happen. By June 30, 2013, I WILL be:
*A toned and lean fitness machine
*Goal weight of 135 pounds (unless I physically cannot lose 23 pounds, but I’m pretty sure I can)
*A swimmer – going to take adult swimming lessons so I can incorporate swimming into my fitness routine
*Healthy – not only will I look great, but I will feel the best I ever have in my life
Someone recently pointed out to me that while I have an “amazing figure”, I need to lose the fat. No one has ever been this harsh with me. At first, I was upset, perhaps even a little angry. But as I have thought about these words over the past few weeks, I realized that this is exactly what I need to hear to motivate me once and for all to get in the best shape of my life.
With that said, I will be blogging a few times a week, discussing my fitness routines, goals, diet, etc. Maybe only one person will read this, but knowing that one person is reading will hold me accountable. I will post pictures once a month showing my progress and hopefully be able to help others with their weight loss goals.
So lets get started. As of January 1, 2013, my stats are as follows:
Height: 5 ft. 7 inches/170.2 centimeters
Weight: 158.0 pounds/71.6 kilograms
Neck: 13 inches/33 centimeters
Biceps: 11.5 inches/29.2 centimeters
Bust: 37.5 inches/95.3 centimeters
Waist (around belly button): 35 inches/88.9 centimeters
Hips: 41.5 inches/105.4 centimeters
Thighs (around thickest part): 23 inches/58.4 centimeters
Again, my weight loss goal is 23 pounds/10.4 kilograms, to get to 135 pounds/61.2 kilograms. I will post pictures and measurements once a month to share my progress. Pictures taken today are as follows:
